Hello, welcome back to another blog! Our names are Kamalei and Scarlett. This week’s blog was explaining what the first assembly of the year was about. This assembly was very inspirational and inspired us to do more acts of service and kindness throughout this year and many more to come. We gathered in the pavilion to learn from two student-lead clubs at our school: the Civic Club and the Kare Kids Club. Kare Kids do extraordinary deeds to help others around the world. For example, they raise money for different organizations like Water For Sudan and for Unicef. The Civics Club might not do good deeds for the world, but they do help by organizing certain events for our centennial year. Civics Club helped organize the haunted house for the Hanahau‘oli Children's Fair. After these two clubs explained a little bit about what they do to help others, Miss. Gabby, our librarian, shared a short story titled The Boy and The Whale. This story is about a boy and his father who see a whale trapped in their fishing net. The boy so desperately wants to help the whale, but his father thinks the opposite. Despite what his father says he tries his best to free the whale. When he does, the whale jumps in the air to rejoice. Through this book we learned a little act of kindness can do a lot in this world. We encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try your best to spread a little kindness wherever you go, because as we said before, a little act of kindness can go a long way.
